Over the top and now down Lowe?

Now that CC Sabathia has made his decision, the other top-tier starting pitchers will make their moves. is reporting that the Yankees are making a run at Derek Lowe.

It makes for several reasons: Lowe is more durable than A.J. Burnett or Ben Sheets, has experience in the AL East, has performed well in the postseason and would probably take a four-year deal.

I’m sure most sane fans realize this. But signing Sabathia takes the Yankees out of the mix with Mark Teixeira. The only want I see the Yankees getting involved with Manny Ramirez is if the market falls apart for him and he has to scramble for cover.

Shameless plug: I’m scheduled to be on SNY’s The Wheelhouse at 5:30 p.m. (ET) with Brian Custer, Scott Ferrall and Brandon Tierney.
